Computations were conducted to determine the effect of load diffusion on the stresses in a ship with a long cutout on each side, beginning with the distribution of bottom pressures. The analysis reveals that in the center region of the vessel under investigation each cross section was nearly fully effective in bending. The effect of load diffusion was found to modify the elementary beam stresses by about 10 to 25 per cent in the region of maximum moment. Computations of stresses in I-beams and… CONTINUE READING
